Tevez linked with move to AC Milan

11:34 am on 26 November 2011

Representatives of Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez are talking to AC Milan about a possible move for the Argentine footballer.

Tevez has not played for City since September when he refused to warm up during their Champions League game at Bayern Munich and has faced internal disciplinary action with manager Roberto Mancini saying he saw no way back for the player.

A move away from the club in the January transfer window is widely expected and Italian media have reported Milan would prefer an initial loan deal with an option to buy.

That would not sit well with City who would only consider a permanent deal and would be unwilling to take a hit by accepting anything below the market price for the talented player just because of his behaviour.

Neither AC Milan nor Manchester City have commented on the matter.
